Assiniboine Community College has released plans to establish a new public safety training centre at its Brandon campus.
The centre will be the first space of its scale in Manitoba, bringing together a variety of training and simulation elements into a single environment.
“Our college is committed to being a leader in public safety programming here in Manitoba,” said Karen Hargreaves, dean of Health and Human Services at ACC. “The formation of this centre is a progressive move for us and one that clearly identifies what we see as our continued role in advancing public safety education.”
The PSTC will include scenario-based and tactical training exercises, Physical defense training, training involving public and commercial vehicles, classroom study, lectures and private debriefing, and high-risk extraction exercises.
The centre is on track to open in January 2015 at ACC’s Victoria Avenue East Campus.
